People hoping this is only temporary will be distraught at having to use up their rainy-day funds, often saved for years for a deposit on a home.
Either it’s rainy day money or it’s saving for a deposit, it can’t be both.
It’s a tricky one though. Disincentivises rainy day funds if you end up getting less benefits than those who didn’t bother but should we pay benefits to those with loads of savings - they probably have paid in more taxes (assuming it wasn’t inherited).
